The story over The final chapter Laid to rest And said our last goodbyes They say we come from nothing And return to nothing Dust to dust That fairy tale is nothing but a lie We all search for meaning In an age of reason Before our eyes the prize That very few can see To live for now and ever Past ties are ripped and severed Break the chains and claim Our immortality Thrown from the precipice Cast to damnation For new life: a sacrifice Old life must die Oh, yet the spirit still remains… Challenge obsolete ideals Deconstruct reality Recreate the world around me I will be reborn Leave forgotten sins behind Resurrect my will to be I arise for my ascendence I will be reborn Look past naive delusions To see a new day Oh, a place with no confusion So take me away… SOLOs: LT Torn from the chrysalis Raging with hunger Emerge from the funeral pyre The Phoenix arise Thrown from the precipice Cast to damnation For new life: a sacrifice Old life must die Oh, yet the spirit still remains… Challenge obsolete ideals Deconstruct reality Recreate the world around me I will be reborn Leave forgotten sins behind Resurrect my will to be Beyond the sacrifice Arise…. I will be reborn

“Judge me for who I am Don’t like me for what I’m not” In every aspect of my life Talk the talk and take the blame Stand up for what I feel is right And feel no shame I’m a sinner, but I’m a winner Take no shit from anyone Speak my mind and do the time For my views CHORUS: Going down – I stand behind the choices I make Going down – Be they wrong or right Going down – I see fires of hell below me Live and die an honest man So take me away… Every day another test Run the gauntlet, walk the line So live your life to be the best Every time Not a rebel or the devil No false facade, I’m true to me Stand up to the bastards And know I’m free SOLOs: LT REPEAT CHOURS x2

It seems like a long time ago Felt the sun on my face A life lived with so much regret There has to be a better place A bitter wind, an empty skin Of all once held true Searching for reasons I wonder if Time can heal these wounds A path that’s well worn, returned here again Once more, oh I’m unsure I’ll find another road Sometimes in finding your way, you lose yourself When the mirror’s eye shows the face of a stranger CHORUS: I’m hearing the same old lines Don’t tell me it’s true when you look in my eyes Keep telling the same old lies… An ever broken dream Crushed again and again Should we lie or a truth be told As a means unto an end? A path that’s well worn, returned here again But this time, oh now I know I’ll find another road A way to believe, a way back to me But I know that this sadness will stay forever REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: LT / LT (HARMONY) / MARK REPEAT CHORUS OUT

Darkness closes in And I turn and face the storm Midnight in the rain Like a thousand times before Oh… I feel the sorrow coming, world succumbing Oh… I feel the sadness tear me away CHORUS: The rain keeps falling down on me Of pain and life unwound to be The rain keeps falling down on me And darkness all around As the rain falls down Falls down on me… A feeling of an empty life Of broken heart, of broken dream So tear the sonnet from my soul Silent words unseen REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: LT / CHRIS BROOKS / LT REPEAT CHORUS

And when the daylight falls to grey When even twilight fades In the darkest veil of night We stray It seems this road will never end Watch our trust decay As sacred memories turn to dust And drift away Can you hear me now? Hear me calling you? Can you see my eyes? These tears that fall for you You know you’ve always been a friend Through even lightless days Sometimes we don’t see eye to eye Times change But can you hear me now? Hear me calling you? So look in my eyes Believe my words to you are true CHORUS: Oh, I’ll never turn my back on you To go my own way You’ll never walk alone To face the darkness Oh, for all the pain that we’ve been through Together And you’ll always have a home Deep inside my heart So many years have passed us by A chance to start again And hope that time will heal these wounds Someday So can you hear me now? Hear me calling you? So look in my eyes Believe my words to you are true REPEAT CHORUS SOLOs: LT REPEAT CHORUS
7.
Watch another fortune fade away Another dream cast to the wind Chronos waits to seize the day So play his game and play to win CHORUS: Take hold of life – walk through the fire Sometimes it seems like time is slipping away Take hold of life – walk through the fire Don’t waste your life when time is slipping away Like the golden goose that never lays Always waiting for the sign Time to see it’s time to be Release the hero, free to fly REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: CHRIS BROOKS / LT / LT (HARMONY) Search inside to find the truth Circumstance won’t come to you Be the one you want to be Live your life to live your dreams REPEAT CHORUS x2

Fuelling the anger inside The rage starts to break Reaching the end of my line It’s all I can take This hunger for justice I crave A thirst for revenge So beg for remorse, for your life As it comes to an end Oh, no more time, no more words for me to say Oh, a time for action, time for you to pay I’ll tear you… CHORUS: Limb from limb – you thrust the dagger deep in my back Limb from limb – you crossed the line the day you stood in front of me Limb from limb – say your prayers, it’s time for payback Limb from limb – don’t stand in my way or I’ll tear you limb from limb Pathetic excuse for a man You’re lower than swine Betrayer, deceiver and coward Born with no spine Believing your own hype Drunk on your ego and power Now beg for your life As you’re torn from your ivory tower Oh, no more time, no more words for me to say Oh, a time for action, time for you to pay I’ll tear you… REPEAT CHORUS SOLOs: LT Feeling my hate penetrate Your inhumane soul Feeling your strength dissipate You’re losing control Down on your knees like a dog No time to reject Spit in your face Now you feel the same disrespect Limb from limb – you thrust the dagger deep in my back Limb from limb – you crossed the line the day you stood in front of me Limb from limb – say your prayers, it’s time for payback Limb from limb… Don’t stand in my way, I’ll warn you now Get out of my way or I’ll tear you limb from limb

Cast to my death in flames But I will never die Past life is burned away Stronger man arise I am shadow, I am light I’m your world to be I am angel, I’m your hell I am me Oh, so it seems like this world always changes But I know what’s coming for me I see with open eyes How things should be CHORUS: Shed the skin of yesterday My legacy begins again today Live the dream that drives me on My destiny, tomorrow will belong to me I leave the blackness, walk into the shining light Reach out for my dreams… SOLOs: LT Ascend from my trial by fire Branded and torn I wear my symbol proudly Carved into my flesh I walk the world A free man SOLOs: LT My path now set in stone As written so shall be Rise up to claim the throne Fulfill my destiny I am angel, I am sin I’m your Lord’s decree I am devil, I am light I am me Oh, so it seems like this world always changes But I know what’s coming for me I see with open eyes How things should be REPEAT CHORUS x2
